About this Ranch

Located on the southern border of Cibola County, Western Bell Ranch is an untamed paradise sitting at 7,070± feet in elevation, great for the big game enthusiast. Consisting of 945± deeded acres, Western Bell Ranch sits in big game unit 12, which is renowned throughout the west for its world-class trophy elk and Mule deer. Unit 12 has recently produced New Mexico’s state record bull elk, and had over 270,000± applicants for New Mexico 2023 big game draw hunts.

Western Bell Ranch is also a rich part of New Mexico's history. Historians have documented it as the founding site of the town of “Fence Lake,” where early settlers fenced off the lake preventing animals from contaminating the town’s water source and thereby giving the town its name, making ownership of this ranch a unique legacy.

The ranch consists of rolling hills, spectacular sandstone bluffs, and rock outcroppings interspersed with juniper and piñon trees. From atop the sandstone bluffs, overlooking a large valley offering a pristine view to the south, all combine to create a scene one would think to find as the description of a Western novel. With thousands of acres of BLM and State land nearby, there are endless miles of ATV riding, horseback riding, and hiking to enjoy. In addition, there is a 5.5’± boundary fence, two water stock tanks on the property, and power to the NE corner.

The Western Bell Ranch is located approximately 90 minutes from a jet-capable airport in Springer, AZ, and only 2.5 hours from the Albuquerque International Airport. With ranches of this quality and location becoming increasingly scarce, the Western Bell Ranch will be highly sought after in today’s ranch market.
